8 Parks near Richwood, Ohio
Jun 2011 - $10.00
Primitive sites available on the NW side of Richwood Lake adjacent to the ball diamonds and the community park itself. Essentially a parking spot with a fire ring. Located next to the swimming beach and walking trail. Can walk to the park or to the local school for lots of playground equipment. No water or electric. Only 4 spots that are 1st come 1st serve. - BNickel

Terrible dirt road to enter, dust bowl. Slow and unprofessional reception by teenager, then unable to park RV on assigned lot for a half hour due to employee car parked on it. After parking , rinsed dust off toad windshield to be able to drive and was promptly told "no washing of car". - Yooper17

The park is off the beaten path and very quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. The park appears to have seen its better days with a lot of long term campers in need of a good cleaning, repair, and picking up. Broken golf carts and other equipment scattered around the campground that are just mowed around v/s removing. It has a very nice lake but again the beach is need of clean up and repair. The park has been under new management for the past 5 years so it is difficult to know what condition it was in when purchased and how much has already been done. It would appear that management is relying on the long term sites to keep money flowing. The campground is close to some of our grandchildren and we would like to return but I doubt that we will. Sad, it has great potential and we wish the new management success! - VietVet

Under new ownership for 2011. Still a nice family friendly park. The playground is getting to be pretty rough. Putt-putt golf needed to be maintained as it was covered with grass, rocks and hickory nuts. Great activities though. Had cardboard boat races during the day and a band in the evening. Kids were disappointed that the hayride or thomas the train wasn't running all weekend. Looks like a new dump station is in the works and they are advertising for new playground equipment in 2011. Growing pains I suppose. Looking forward to the improvements coming as the Campground is fairly local and we enjoy visiting with many of the seasonals here. - BNickel

This state park is very nice. We stayed here 5 nights and the park is quiet, clean and the facilities are well kept. Our site had a fire ring and picnic table. The roads are paved and the sites are as well. All of the sites are back in only, but they are very spacious in width and length. There is no water at the site, or sewer, but there is electric and a dump station. The only downside to the park is the rude staff that works in the entry booth to the park. She deliberately keeps the lights off to make it appear that the office is closed during working hours. If you need to purchase anything or renew your reservation you will have to stop and go in the booth, even if it looks closed. Despite that, we would definitely stay here again. - Perfection expected

Very nice state park. There are a lot of things that need attention, but we really like this park. There is a lot to do here. Tis a a very large park. Just needs to have some new shower houses and the roads resurfaced. - jemerson

This is one of our favorite state parks. The spots are huge. They are set up in courts so you have few neighbors. There are miles of bicycling roads. Everything is always clean and well maintained. The dump station is easy to get to with both sides accessible so the wait is never long. - Let'sGo!

Very well kept park. Mostly full timers. Grass sites are a little off level but could level the RV OK. Entrance is a long, tree lined lane, but the gravel road is in very good shape. The whole park was groomed very nice. Management is very helpful. Has a small swimming lake and also a small fishing lake. Would definitely camp here again. - darby

The campground was laid out in a confusing manner. The sites varied in size and were not well defined. Because of this, we continually had people walking through "our space". It felt like a grassy field with folks just camped all around wherever they wanted to. Rigs were faced in all directions at will and folks parked wherever they wanted to on the grass around their rig. Our site was supposed to have a 50 amp service but it kept tripping off. We were told that there was something wrong with our rig. We are full-time RVers and have not had this problem in other campgrounds before or after staying at Pastime. The tree cover made it difficult to get satellite TV. - lauraslytle

Open April 1-Oct. 31st. Located at the Plain City Fairgrounds. It is generally quiet, but I expect this can vary based on other programs planned during your stay (i.e. music in the park, Steam Threshers Festival, Rod Builders). The following activities are available: playground for children, disc golf course, basketball court, baseball field, short level hiking trail within park, city pool for an additional charge. Staff is helpful and friendly. We will definitely come here again if we are in the Columbus area. - B D HOWie

Only one spot has sewer. We reserved online, then called to clarify details. There had been an event the weekend before, but only a handful of campers there when we arrived, so we were able to pull through our spot without issue. It's pretty much a large park with hookups scattered throughout. The bathrooms were acceptable, on the cleaner side, but the shower was a bit scuzzy. I like the quiet setting, though no gate, and it's a public park so anyone can drive in and around. Jan and Tony's Pizza delivers here, and there's a nice little bowling alley just down state road 42, next to the Dutch Amish restaurant, Der Dutchman. Don't follow phone directions to Park Street, enter from N Chillicothe St. - RVBlessings

Alum Creek is generally fine and would is fine for a basic, no frills, state park stay. We visited over a moderately busy weekend and found the check in the be efficient, the park generally clean, and the sites to be well laid out. We did enjoy being in a "premium" site which offered a bit more privacy and room to spread out. Even the non-premium sites were not too cramped and seemed to be adequate.
There were campground host sites labeled but we never saw anyone outside or helping out with park maintenance or other duties. In addition we heard noise from several campsites late at night while walking the dog and no one seemed to be around to enforce the quiet hours or to say anything to the campers. Ideally this would be a ranger or security guard but we have seen hosts try to help out with friendly reminders.
The bathrooms were OK but are getting a little long in the tooth. Perhaps time to pony up some state funds for replacements. They were in need of a good cleaning - they were not disgusting but just not quite as well-maintained as we would have hoped.
We did have one complaint. In an effort to abide by the firewood restrictions most states have we try to buy wood on site. For $5 per bundle we got five thin pieces of slab wood that were FILLED with black ants. The wood was wet and dirty as well. Compared to what we have seen from other Ohio parks this was a big disappointment.
One other thing we would suggest is to regrade and replant the grassy areas next to the site pads. Ours was eroded and basically all dirt and gravel. We've seen better. - reofinadv

We're fulltime RV'ers and I'm not sure I've ever given a park a 10, so this may be a first! I can't think of anything bad about this park. Wish we would've had more nights to spend there. They have updated a section of the park and made it all full hookups, level asphalt paved drives, concrete patio, shrubs all around for privacy. It is just a few miles away from Columbus OH so there is plenty around to do. We were there for a specific event so we didn't get to enjoy the lake but there were lots of people out there on the lake. Lots of trails around. No WIFI but our Verizon signal was good as was AT&T. We were able to get satellite coverage. They accept Passport America Sun-Thurs. We'd definitely stay here again. We have a 35' fifth wheel and had no problems with the length, width or low limbs, etc. - jacknpeg

Just electric hook up on most sites. We reserved the site on line. It is difficult to see what you are getting. Nice park on the lake with some sites with water access. We stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and the park was packed. Bring your boat. - Bburgbrewer

I stayed at this campground just for one night on my way from Michigan to North Carolina. This is a full-service, full amenities campground. There's a pool, I think there were tennis courts, play areas, a beautiful walking trail and a real check in building with some camping necessities and I believe even some light food. Check in was accommodating. They took me to my site and told me to let them know if I needed anything. The site was very unlevel so I called the office and asked if I could be moved to a more level site. Instead they came and helped me level my trailer. They said that of the sites that they had available that was about the best they could do. I did get an off-season discount of $35. This was higher than most of the places I stayed on my trip for off-season rates, but given what they had to offer and their overhead it was appropriate. They had full hook ups, as well as Wi-Fi. I think they had cable but I didn't use it. I was able to bring in lots of local channels. One of the things I like the best was their long nature walk. It goes into the woods around the campground, and was a good half hour walk and was a great start to the day before we got on the road again. The sites were very close together. It looked as though they were putting up a big Christmas display which made it kind of fun. - Donna In GR

This is a real nice park. Staff went way beyond good customer service. Even let us pick out our site. Nice large site - utilities worked well. Wifi was typically slow. Appears about half are permanent sites but are all nicely landscaped without all the "stuff" that you often see. Was nice and quiet too. - padre

Probably the nicest campground we have ever stayed in after nearly 40 years of RVing. It has won "National ARVC Campground of the Year" four times and it's easy to see why. Rural in nature, it has excellent wifi, over the air TV channels (about 15-20), well-maintained and plenty to do. If you're in this area, you won't be disappointed. - hughdogg6
